Updraft, sanddunearch, /scratch/general, /scratch/serial, and /scratch/uintah retirement - January 31, 2014 at 8am

Posted: January 17, 2014

As was announced last May, CHPC has been making plans to retire updraft, sanddunearch, /scratch/general, /scratch/uintah, and /scratch/serial. The date for the retirement of this equipment is January 31, 2014. Reservations are in place so the queues for the two clusters will be drained by 8am on January 31, 2014.

Any user that has data they need to keep on the retiring scratch file systems should move the data to either their home directories, group spaces, or to one of the remaining scratch file systems: /scratch/kingspeak/serial, /scratch/ibrix/chpc_gen, or /scratch/ibrix/icse.

The interactive nodes of updraft and sanddunearch as well as the scratch file systems will remain online until Feb 3rd at noon. The file systems will however be changed to read-only mode. This will provide a small window for users to migrate any data from the last jobs off of the scratch systems that will be retiring.

If you have any questions about this hardware retirement or need assistance with data migration, please let us know.
